(No. 118) I'm still looking. At moments, a bit of light will appear.
At age 84 - I feel as if I am just learning who I am. I lived at home til I was 19 and was married for 63 years. So who I was - was shaped and molded by others. Now, it's just me and the two cats. I am in the process of figuring out who the real Janice is.
I love what you write Stephan. I'm really enjoying your book in the making. I too find that I'm just getting to know myself again. I've been recognizing some major landmarks in my life that I hadn't noticed before. They have finally come to the surface.
I do know life has to be about adjustments, attitude is key.
A positive upbringing from a household of love & support. Then in adult life a few near death experiences, add in a few spiritual episodes not many people would believe…. And when I start to feel a bit down about anything I remind myself of September 11, and think of other absolute tragic things that happen to good people. Just thank my lucky stars and break my life back down to the minutes I am now living. Being aware of how I spend the minutes.
Pretty content at 63!
More than happy to be content.
